Southwest Power Pool Launches Marketplace

Southwest Power Pool (SPP), a regional transmission organization (RTO), launched an integrated marketplace in which market participants buy and sell wholesale energy and reserves in both a day-ahead and real-time market through the operation of a single, consolidated balancing authority.

Accenture was instrumental in helping SPP establish the marketplace.

SPP is now able to coordinate next-day generation across the region and provide participants with greater access to reserve energy. The marketplace helps SPP improve regional balancing of electricity supply and demand and to integrate renewable resources. The day-ahead market also provides participants with a mechanism to hedge against transmission congestion charges through the allocation and settlement of transmission congestion rights.

Accenture was selected in 2011 to provide services in program and project management, systems integration, technical architecture, regulatory services and readiness and deployment management.
